Long-Range Program for Library Service in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire State Library, Concord.
The New Hampshire Long-Range Program contains: (1) a description of New Hampshire's identified present and projected library needs; (2) a plan of action for meeting these identified needs over the next five years and (3) a statement of policies, criteria, priorities, and procedures, to be updated as progress toward meeting the State's library needs requires. In 1970 all but 5,914 or 0.8% of New Hampshire's 737,681 residents had public library services available locally. At present 189 of the 231 public libraries in the State are participating in the Statewide Library Development Program. The quality of public library service locally varies from inadequate to excellent. To strengthen public library service statewide all public libraries in the State should participate in the Statewide Library Development Program. There is also a need to evaluate the services under the program to determine strengths and weaknesses and future directions. (Other State Plans are: LI 003 985 through LI 003 992) (Author/NH)
